Leading Italian manufacturer Ritrama SpA has announced that its Chilean production site has started a partnership with a recycling company in Chile.
This is a sustainable recycling project, which uses PET liners to be transformed into clamshell and trays for packaging.
The Ritrama Group considers environmental policies an essential part of its sustainable development and is committed to continually implement these in all they do.
This new PET recycling solution, offered by Ritrama, provides label printers and brand end users (beverage, home and personal care) with a sustainable recycling option for PET release liners once these have been used. This initiative is of clear environmental benefit as it offers cost and waste savings in the use of the product. Its high RPET (post consumer recycled material) content helps to reduce the carbon footprint.
An increased awareness among consumers regarding the impact of everyday items on the environment has led to a greater need for greener packaging solutions to sustain a healthier future.
Ritrama Chile will propose the PET recycling option to all its customers. The technology developed can be easily implemented in other geographical areas. The collection of the waste material is arranged through local waste disposal services by means of their usual boxes and carrier facilities.
This is an important step in the Ritrama Group’s commitment to further promote initiatives towards a more sustainable labelling process through their worldwide production and distribution network.
